While I was away
A couple items worth mentioning that I didn't get to mention last week when I was on vacation --
* The WSJ's John Fund had a lengthy column about election fraud issues from around the country, and devoted a fair amount of space to recent events here in Washington.
* Toby Nixon gave an eloquent address at the King County Charter Review Commission's panel on I-25, and helped persuade the Commission to reject its co-chairmen's suggestion to oppose I-25 this year.

1. Fund's article says alot about what we are facing in future elections - not something to be sneezed at. Accountibility in electing a government will continue to be flushed down the toilet as long as no one has the political will to do anything about it !
King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg basically sweeps the fraud issue under the rug by agreeing to a simple fine payment by Acorn.
That is business as usual in Western Washington, King County in particular. Huey Long's political machine had nothing on the Seattle Demothugs.
It is highly unlikely that any real fix will be made to our election process. Fraud will continue to appoint the "leaders", obviously up to and including the Governership.
It gets worse. Check out today's LA Times:
39 counties' vote systems in question
L.A.'s InkaVote method may be recertified, but others face starting from scratch with a primary election
Just in time for the Presidential Election. The same tactics used to elect Bill will be used to elect Hillary.
Nice to see Toby remain active. It is also nice to see Chris Vance as a regular contributor to Crosscut.
Unfortunately for the election fraud issue is that we have keyed in on the dastardly ACORN group. Once they disappear we will have just as great a problem but no sexy villain.
